10cc - I'm not in love.

It's the backing tracks of vocals recorded as notes to make up chords when the band played the volume pots on the mixing desk....so clever. Just does my head in....

Not about you, but weird how some feel the need to have some sort of race topic integrated (see what I did there?) into the discussion. I think it's because it becomes a shorthand.

It's possible to wonder "what would Joplin have done with this?" Someone with more aggression in their delivery - but maybe it's really not possible since I'm imagining that his should be sung in a perfectly kept mid-century styled apartment.

I knew you did but clarity is good.  It can be easy to misconstrue stuff in written forums - as we've all seen. 
True though, Hal David did often write some goofy - or just painful- lyrics; like this tune, nice melody, chords, and arrangement, but badly dated (and sexist) lyrics:

Yeah - I didn't mean to bring that in as some "hot-button" point of contention or something, but you knew that.  It's just something I'd heard said about them over the years.  But that practice does become a sort of shorthand far too often though.

The lyricism of Hal David here always blows me away, (“I end each day the way I start out / crying my heart out” WTF!!!) but McCoo’s (and the other 4 Dimensions’) soulless delivery frustrates the heck out of me. Appropriate for the times, but in my head I wish for something much more gut wrenching. I understand it’s supposed to be false bravado, but when she gets to the point of “I don’t know how / in the world / to stop thinking of him...” it’s still just a bit too cool for me.
